I'm on the fence here. I like Nathan Fillion, but he is not my ideal Booster Gold. Judging by these numbers, I'm not alone.
Last week's poll question: Should Nathan Fillion be cast as Booster Gold? (54 votes)
Comic book characters get reinvented all the time. Even the perennial-sellers like Superman and Batman aren't the same characters they were 70, 30, or even 10 years ago. They keep their names and their capes and their dead parents, but that's about all. That makes me wonder what parts of a Booster Gold's character are so essential that they can't be changed?
This week's poll question: Which element is most important to defining the character of Booster Gold?

Booster Gold fans rejoice! Our hero, the gilded guardian of time, and his sentient sidekick, Skeets, return to action today when they join forces with that mini munchkin of mayhem, Bat-Mite! Evildoers beware, the team of Mite and Gold are on the case!
*Ahem.* (All that bubbly sort of goes straight to your head, doesn't it?)

Last week, Dan Seitz wrote on Uproxx.com that the DC movie universe needed more levity in the style of Marvel Comic's Deadpool. His solution? More Booster Gold.
That's what's great about Booster; he's funny and he often reflects our shallower instincts, but he's also a reflection of our ability to set aside the day-to-day B.S. and petty selfish desires when we need to. The fundamental issue DC has always faced is that their characters are essentially Gods walking the Earth. Booster's ultimately one of us, a flawed human being, and we could use more of those on-screen in superhero movies, especially if they come with smart-ass remarks.
Seems to me that we already have plenty of flawed human beings in super hero movies as it is, but we can always use more Booster Gold and smart-ass remarks. (Though these days, I suspect that the only reason Warner Brothers would put Booster in a movie would be to kill him off and give Batman one more reason to be angsty.)

I usually save previews for Wednesdays, but I thought since we've been in a bit of a Booster Gold drought since Convergence, I'd go ahead and post a link to Uproxx.com's preview of this week's Bat-Mite #4.
I'm sure it's not my imagination that Skeets is starting to look like a golden, robotic Batman. Though, to be fair, this is a "Batman Family" title. Loosely.

On Wednesday, Rich Johnston of BleedingCool.com reported that DC Comics is "open for pitches and proposals" for a new Booster Gold title that may be coming in 2016.
Make of this what you will. It has always been my impression that DC is "open for pitches and proposals" for most of their characters most of the time. But I do want a new Booster Gold comic. Here's hoping.
